Özet

In the Oltu-Narman (Erzurum) Tertiary Basin, coals occur in the Oligo-Miocene lacustrine sequence. In this study, n-alkane, isoprenoid and saturated-aromatic biomarker distributions of coals in the Sakans region are found in association with pyrolysis and petrographic data and detailed organic geochemical characteristics, depositional environments and hydrocarbon potential of the coals are propounded.
